Vinyl Siding

Vinyl SidingVinyl is taking over where aluminum siding left off. When vinyl siding first came on the market it had many problems due to expansion and contraction and color retention. Today vinyl is widely accepted and after many innovations, it offers a maintenance free product that looks very good on the home. Imitation siding like vinyl will never look exactly like wood, but vinyl siding is for the customer that desires less maintenance than wood or fiber cement siding.

Vinyl siding is available in 2” 3” 4” and 5” clapboard siding. Up until about ten years ago, vinyl could not offer 6 & 7” panels because it was not rigid enough. Today, vinyl manufacturers have developed foam backed insulated siding that can give the homeowner a 6 and 7 inch reveals similar to cedar or cement board.

Vinyl siding has quickly become the largest share of the siding market. Vinyl is available in a myriad of colors and styles as well as architectural products.

Vinyl SidingAll vinyl sidings including the least expensive, carry lifetime warranties against most things that cannot even happen. Be wary of the cheaper sidings as they still exist but may not withstand tough Midwest winters and summers. High end vinyl sidings with the extra thickness and reinforcement, along with special additives will make the product last indefinitely. High-end vinyl siding can be sprayed down with a garden hose a few times a year to remove surface dirt and they will remain just like they were purchased for the lifetime of the product.
